I am honored ...

These last few weeks I have received my first award for blogging, and my second, and my third! You ladies rock. I am honored and humbled by you for passing these bits of recognition along to me.

My first award came from Julie at Just Playin' Around.

It's the One Lovely Blog Award. The rules of this award are:
**Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.**

Now 15 is a lot of blogs. Do I read that many? Sure. Have I "discovered" that many in recent weeks? I donno'! But I'll look into it and get back to you all soon, I promise!

My next two awards come from Michele at
Finding Trinity.

The first one she passed along to me is the Honest Scrap award. Here are the three rules:
**Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged me. Tell those 7 people they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving the award. Share "10 Honest Things" about myself.

The second award Michele has given me is the PIMP award, now don't get your panties in a twist, it's one she created that means: Pee in my Pants! Hee hee. I love it. It cracks me up by name alone! And the best part is, there are no rules! All I have to do is feel free to pass it along to someone else who makes me laugh my butt off, and tah dah, I'm done.

So since I'm too lazy to look for my award recipients, I'll start with the 10 honest things about myself and move forward from there:

1. I have never had my driver's license.

2. I have not eaten any non-chicken/turkey "meat" since 1988.

3. I love to read. Can you tell? I seriously find myself reading the labels of products when I forget to bring something into the bathroom with me.

4. I hope to someday write something good enough to be published.

5. I met my husband at work. I was dating his boss when he started working there.

6. I have never colored my hair.

7. I have never had anything *waxed.* (TMI? Perhaps.)

8. I gained 26 pounds during my pregnancy.

9. I obtained my MSW while working 3 days a week at my tax publishing job, 3 days a week at my internship and 2 nights a week at school.

10. I have only had 1 true taste of beer in my entire life and that night was one I will never forget. True, there were many other beverages imbibed throughout that evening, but I swear it was the beer that led me to become ill on the ride home from college with my parents. Oh, yes, did I not mention that they arrived early the next morning to find me still in bed, not yet fully packed to return home for the summer after my sophomore year?

Thanks, Michele, for passing that on to me. I'll get back to forwarding these to others at another time. All this honesty has me in need of a drink. Of water, my silly friends. I am home alone with my daughter, I wouldn't crack into the wine just yet! (OK, so that was the case when I wrote this, but then it wouldn't let me post, so I could have some wine now, but feel too crappy to crack open a bottle!)


  1. Great list! I read everything too. I can probably tell you everything in my toothpaste.
